I would choose Charles School because they have many choices for choosing a place.

Well, if I were there, I would choose Charles school. There are two main reasons: Firstly, there are many choices for choosing a place to study. Varying places is a good reason, because I can compare my state with every place and then I can choose the best. Next, I would like to study part time, especially in the morning. Fortunately, the morning classes have the lowest cost. However, the cost of Elizabeth school is lower than the Charles school. Indeed, I prefer studying English in Cambridge or Oxford. So, if I can afford it, I would like to go to one of them. Regards, Tayyebi
